(Verse 1)
I was born in the ghetto
Grow up in the slum
Heartless criminal left me and my family
Strictly raise in poverty
Grow up wid my dignity
Educated in the street how to make money
Big dreams have to be the one we chase
My business in 25 countries
Now lay back, tell dem win wid ease

(Chorus)
Ghetto life is different in allot of ways
Our life nuh easy pon the battle field
Suh wi haffi have a dream
Like Martin Luther King

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
Ghetto youth a work hard
Haffi go hard
Because wi want the bills
Wi haffi work hard
Work hard

Ghetto youth a work hard
Haffi go hard
Because wi want the bills
Wi haffi work hard
Work hard

(Repeat Chorus 2X)
